Bow Manufacturers / Browning Illusion?

4 posts in this topic

Hey everyone. Just curious about something. I'm not really clear about what company makes which bows. I think Browning and PSE are made by the same company, but not too sure. I've also heard that the parent company of Fred Bear also owns Matthews/Solocam. Is that true?

Also, has anyone shot the Browning Illusion? Any pros/cons?

Thanks in advance!

John

IMO, Browning puts out a quality product. I don't know anything about the Illusion but I have a ballistic mirage that is nearly ten yrs old and has been a great bow for me. One of the things that impressed me with Browning was at that time they offered the widest range of adjustment in a bow. I can't offer anything on your other questions but in todays corporate world it is likely that many different brand name are manufactured under the same roof.

Thanks, Eagle. I currently shoot a Ballistic Mirage, too. It's been a great bow for me. But lately, it seems the deer are knocked over by the sonic boom created at the time of release before the arrow even reaches them...

      I also needed to buy a receiver so my total cost was $500 but they did have them at Scheels beginning of the year but you can buy it from dish. I think they charge $7 a month for use of the receiver.

      I was out last night in west metro and the water had mostly either frozen again or gone down the open holes. I was pleasantly surprised. We lost about an inch of ice though the top few inches were starting to soften.

      I would build a frame that your current otter sled would fit in that has downhill skis on the bottom of it.  I did this for my setup that is very similar to yours, I can pull 100 pounds through 8" of snow with very little effort.  Side note I wouldn't pull it with a four wheeler, mine slides to easy and wants to hit the back of the wheeler when I try to stop.

      I've got an Eskimo 949I which I love. We occasionally go deep off the trail to isolated lakes and my otter sled is too much like dragging an anchor when we break new trail or if there is deeper snow on the ice. I am in search of a slender long sled that pulls easier and can still accommodate my hub house, auger, buckets, poles etc.   ive looked at gander, FF, cabelas, Joe's and the like without finding exactly what I want. Does anyone know of a sled that fits my description?  Thanks and tight lines.
